Ms. Porcari told the class to write an introductory paragraph and a paragraph with one reason. These are my paragraphs:
"Open up! How old are you?" "I-I 11, I'm 11, my birthday is tomorrow, so I'm basically 12." "Not good enough, you are under arrest!" OK government, that's enough! He is basically 12,in fact, kids should be able to stay home alone or with someone younger than them by the age of 10. To start off, kids are fully capable to take care of themselves when they are in 4th or 5th grade. Additionally, leaving kids home at the age of ten gives moms and dads more flexibility. Last of all, it helps kids gain responsibility. Without a doubt, kids should be able to be left home at age 10.
I think kids should be able to stay home at the age of ten because it helps kids gain responsibility. When I was maybe 9 or 10, I would never want to follow my mom and dad to parties or memorials. Sometimes I got to stay home (I'm the oldest in my family), and sometimes I had to go with them. When I stayed home, the feeling of staying home and being in charged of my younger sister made me feel responsible, but when I had to go with them, I felt irresponsible because when I was younger, I felt that they treated me like a baby or a wild dog when I had to go with them, and the weird part is that it even happens with older kids! Without question, kids should be able to stay home at the age of 10.
